Great breakfast, typical farm town portions and great quality. Could have to wait at peak times though.

Great breakfast burritos! Can be busy in the mornings but worth the wait.

“Nice people, nice place but mediocre food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2012

The staff were courteous and helpfiul; the decor was charming 50s diner- style; and the service was fast with generous portions. Sadly, the food wasn't all that good. Vegetables were either from a can or cooked to the consistency of jello, and even the baked potato wasn't quite right. Maybe I just ordered the wrong meal, but I think breakfast would be a safer bet here than dinner.
